"There are two types of education: education for a living and education for life. When we study in college, striving to become a doctor, a lawyer, or an engineer, that is education for a living, but education for life requires an understanding of the essential principles of spirituality; it is about gaining a deeper understanding of the world, our minds, our emotions, and ourselves. We all know that the real goal of education is not to create people who understand only the language of technology; the main purpose of education should be to impart a culture of the heart, a culture based on spiritual values." -Amma

Throughout India, the Ashram runs 53 schools, from pre-primary to high school. New Amrita Vidyalayams are established every year. The schools provide high standards in academic studies through enthusiastic, activity-oriented teaching. Every available opportunity is used to instill positive values, which are considered an integral part of the schools' holistic approach to learning.

The children have a routine designed to keep them physically fit, mentally alert and spiritually aware. They learn how to practice meditation and are taught the value of selfless service. They also study Sanskrit and the classical Indian art forms.

Each school provides 75-l00 free scholarships for students coming from poor families.
